Sorry i'm new to the forum so i posted in the wrong are please accept my appologies. Does anyone know how to check the handbrake adjuster after changing both rear handbrake cables? The adjuster is part of the handbrake lever assembly with the yellow reset pin.

Can't seem to get it to work. Are we missing a trick. As car failed mot.

Post answer response

Thanks, we havn't replaced the pads as they are relatively new. Failed mot on handbrake efficiency so tried the brake cables but doesn't seem to have changed much. Brake test passed Was just wandering if we may have dissengaged the self-adjuster on the handbrake some how.
We removed self adjuster pin so wandering if we refitted correctly.

Broken locking wheel nut

In addition broken the locking wheel nut socket so am about to drill out so do you know the best extractor to use that would be tough enough. I know catalogue of probs. but better to try from a point of experience than ignorance. Thanks to all in anticipation.
